The research

The research aims at investigating what can be labelled as the
transnational dimension of administrative law, which appears to
challenge the territoriality of public law. Furthermore,
“transnational administrative law” is as a missing piece in the
theoricization of legal globalization.
The purpose of the general research is to determine what theoretical
and practical keys can be used in order to analyze the legal issues
raised by the development, in Europe and outside, of situations,
arrangements, mechanisms, belonging to the administrative law realm,
but immersed in two or several legal systems and determined by
horizontal connections between Domestic Public Laws: cross-border
cooperation schemes, transnational administrative procedures (ad ex.
Schengen), effects of the directive on services, possible impact of
transatlantic treaties, and so on.
